Hold on, I’m really happy for you, and I’m going to let you finish, but Kanye has the best ego of all time. No questions asked, no comments needed: Kanye West has the best ego of all time.
VH1 reported Oct. 14 that Kanye and Kim Kardashian may star in a spinoff of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the reality TV show that promoted the Kardashian-Jenner clan to constant celebrity magazine fodder.
This may be the infamous couple’s best step, though they’ve already created a baby fashion line (as well as an actual baby).
Kanye wouldn’t be Kanye without his ego. It’s become a pop culture phenomenon. When you think Kanye, you think his ego, his obscure rap lyrics and how much of a “god” he claims to be.
Have you noticed that Miley Cyrus seems to be a mountain full of confidence lately? Kanye is the original Miley. No matter how many haters there are, she literally doesn’t care; she’s all about doing what makes her happy. If that means pissing a few people off, so be it. Kanye is cut from the same cloth.
One of the things Kanye is best known for, aside from his music of course, is his habit of “ranting,” especially over Twitter. He may be onto something, though he doesn’t fit the archetype, so to speak, of someone trying to start a movement.
Kanye’s movement is getting a new culture forward. In his song “I Am a God,” he talks about how he bought the real game of rap back. Nothing can bring him down. Therefore, he is a god.
His confidence is his everything.
If Kanye were to release his worst music ever, with the lowest record sales, he would still find a way to brush it off and defend his work.
We all need a little bit of Kanye’s ego in our lives. We seem to be lacking ego lately. But it can make a difference. In Kanye’s case, it may be misunderstood, but he is a genius. His ego keeps him going and going and going.
We are bound to fail if we don’t find some sort of faith in ourselves to keep us up. While Kanye has the money and the fame, he’s also just a person, suffering from prejudice and judgment.
Kanye wants to be taken seriously. He wants to be heard, and he wants to be known as the greatest. There’s nothing wrong with that. Most people have a natural desire to be known as the greatest, or the fastest, or the funniest. Kanye’s just more open about it.
And he is the greatest, or at least one of them. He’s a legend. Anything he touches turns platinum — and a “Kardashians” spinoff will be the same way.
On Oct. 10, Kanye appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live after a highly publicized beef between the two transpired over Twitter.
Jimmy Kimmel sat down with Kanye, who spoke about the way he is perceived in the public eye.
“At the end of the day, they will still hate me, but I will love me,” he said.
If he’d ever believed what others said about him, he wouldn’t be Kanye West: He’d just be another rapper in Chicago trying to make it.
